A neat old fortification from the days of Spanish colonization.

Not a lot to see but some neat old cannons. A nice place to take s casual walk through. Other historical sites to see near by.

Somehow, it just felt safer when we stayed here. It really gave us the experience and first hand look at the history and culture of Manilla. Can't wait to go back.

Interesting but not much... the wall are already very damaged. It's near to Manila Cathedral, so you can see it by the way ;)

So ... the Philippines was Spanish colony for 300 years. And it was really interesting seeing a little piece of Europe in a corner of Manila. Definitely learned a whole lot about their national hero Jose Rizal through a museum inside "the wall". I think it's a good place to start your visit in Manila since you'll learn the background...

I was hoping this historic part of the city would be walkable and maybe to some it was but to a solo female traveler... I dunno. I didn't feel safe exactly. The tiny horses pulling heavy carriages weren't exactly an upper, either. As I was at the church, a korean tour group rolled in so I hoping I'd tag with... More

As we were having not a lot of time we wanted to see something of historical Manila. Intramuros is absolutely worth to visit and see. We walked around no guided tour and it gave a good impression of how it used to be.

After our Cabanatuan trip we decided to go around manila, my parents together with my brother and his family decided to go in Manila Ocean Park when me and my husband said we'll go somewhere nearby since we've already been there together last 2010, so I got to decide where to go and I said let's see Intramuros. Fort Santiago... More

Intramuros is a living beacon of history! It is right within our reach and willing offers itself to a look and feel of Manila's glorious past! The cobbled stones lend the path to step back and imagine how our ancestors lived... The old edifices boast of its once beaming royalty! The old churches, the fort santiago, and guards in olden...

I must go in Manila especially if your a history buff, several beautiful churches, Fort Santiago, shopping and hotels, plan on spending half a day there at least and I recommend the horse drawn carriage ride, just negotiate the price before you get it
